Samoan winger, Lome Fa'atau, shows off his traditional Samoan
tattoo (pe'a) during the Rugby World Cup 2003 held in Australia. Lome
said, that the pe'a was a way for young Samoan men to honour their heritage
and show respect for their culture. The pe'a took nine days to complete with the
entire operation being carried out with a pig's tooth attached to a drum stick.
